Days 2 & 3 - Bearskin Lake: Silently our canoes glide along the foot of tall cliffs as loons sing a haunting serenade. Savor a panoramic picnic at the top of Honeymoon Bluff. With its hand-carved furniture and lake-side cabins, the Hungry Jack Lodge is our home for the next two nights. Paddling and hiking reward us with the legendary vista of Rose Lake Overlook, where crystal lakes stretch into Canada, reflecting the scenic drama of shear rock bluffs.
Days 4 & 5 - Routes of the Voyageurs: Paddling the border lakes we explore the path of the early furtraders and relish a gourmet picnic at the foot of thundering Little Rock Falls. Mounting up, we ride horseback to see the High Cliffs and enjoy a steak dinner campfire cookout. Luxury cabins with fireplaces and private saunas await us at the Gunflint Lodge. Therapeutic massages are an optional treat. A morning hike leads to impressive Magnetic Rock, a geologic curiosity where compasses go crazy and watches come to a stop. A local historian entertains us on the Granite River as we search for moose and otter. Tonight the lodge's legendary chef prepares a gourmet farewell dinner.
